Sanitation During Food Processing

Sanitation During Food Processing

(webinar length 1h 33m)

The introduction of sanitation is viewed as the most successful food safety initiative in history. Indeed, over 30% of the foodborne illness cases linked back to processing environments can be attributed to poor sanitation.

This webinar will provide a thorough examination of all aspects of sanitation during processing.

At the end of the webinar you will have an understanding of:

  • Regulations associated with plant sanitation
  • Challenges that need to be overcome in wet and dry product sanitation
  • How to develop, implement and maintain a sanitation plan
  • The range of sanitizers available and how to select based on the application
  • The tools available to monitor and verify the performance of sanitation plants
  • The availability and efficacy of non-chemical (physical) based sanitizers
  • The potential of biological agents as the new generation of sanitizing agents
  • Approaches that can be taken to deliver more effective training to sanitation crews and foster a food safety culture

Who will benefit:

  • Quality Assurance Managers
  • Production Managers
  • Laboratory Managers
  • Food Safety Personnel
  • HACCP Coordinators
  • Government Food Inspectors
  • Sanitation Managers
  • Corporate and Plant Microbiologists
  • Processing Engineers
  • Operations Supervisors and Managers 

Presenter--Dr. Keith Warriner

Dr. Keith Warriner is currently an Associate Professor within the Department of Food Science at University of Guelph, Canada. Dr. Warriner received his BSc in Food Science from the University of Nottingham, UK and PhD in Microbial Physiology from the University College of Wales Aberystwyth, UK. He later went on to work on biosensors within the University of Manchester, UK and subsequently returned to the University of Nottingham to become a Research Fellow in Food Microbiology. He joined the Faculty of the University of Guelph in 2002.

During the last fifteen years in the field of microbiology and food safety research, Dr. Warriner has published more than 100 papers, book chapters, patents, and conference abstracts. He has broad research areas encompassing development of decontamination technologies, biosensors for biohazard detection, and more fundamental research on the interaction of human pathogens with plants. One notable research accomplishment was the development of a decontamination treatment for sanitizing seeds destined for sprout production and a further process based on Advanced Oxidation Process for inactivating pathogens on fresh produce. Current research in the area is focused on developing biocontrol strategies based on using a combination of antagonistic bacteria and bacteriophage to reduce levels of human pathogens at the primary production stage.
